SMART INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR LOST ATM CARDS
The advent of technology is increasing day by day. Man stopped carrying money purses or wallets with them wherever they go. Instead, they started carrying Credit Cards, Debit Cards and ATMs. They carry on with their shopping and pay the bill amounts using these cards. Thus, these cards have become a part of human life. But, if a human loses this card, the loss cannot even be imagined. When the technology brings out a new invent into light, the invent has its own advantages and disadvantages. As an engineer, it is our responsibility to use the technology in a right way at the best.
This project has been designed as a real time application to trace out the lost ATM cards. Whenever the user inserts his ATM card into ATM machine, a message will be sent to the user providing the details like time of card insertion, date, place where the card has been inserted. This database will be maintained both in the bank and at the ATM center which is real time environment which is being simulated using a switch.
Whenever any user loses his ATM card, he puts a complaint in the bank. When this lost card if placed in the ATM center by any person other than the user, the card details will be immediately sent to the bank. Thus, the bank gets the information about the lost ATM card.
